Primary Assessment Campaign

The Union is calling for a full review of curriculum and assessment in primary schools in England, with the suspension of current arrangements while the review is conducted to put an immediate halt to the damage being caused to children, teachers and schools.  If the DfE is unwilling to make the changes needed the executive has agreed a plan for a boycott of KS1 and KS2 tests to protect children, teachers and schools from another year of damaging and deficient accountability and assessment. The fiasco of primary assessment in 2016 must not be repeated next year.
